Many business leaders think that the latest marketing or sales strategies are the key to growth and building an independence-based business. They fail to realize that all the strategies in the world will not work without a strong mindset.
The concept and idea behind developing your mindset has been turned into cute Instagram memes. It’s not taken seriously enough, and it shows a lack of growth for a lot of business leaders. Spending time and energy developing your mindset is what makes a successful life and helps you achieve your goals.
There are some major growth mindset changes that every leader should consider making in order to meet their goals. Using solid growth strategies is essential to doubling your revenue, making a greater impact, and creating a freer life.
Here are three practical and powerful growth mindset adjustments that help leaders foster success, accomplish their goals, and experience true independence.
1. Stop trying to live up to external expectations.
The question you have to ask yourself is, whose life are you living? If you sit down and think about how you spent your time and the things you focused on, you’ll probably be a little surprised. It is not unusual for many people to live their lives based on external expectations.
If the goals you are working towards are not your own, you will never be able to lead a successful life or create your independence. A growth-optimized mindset is when you have complete clarity about what you want to achieve and how you want to spend your time.
When you stop caring about what others think and stop trying to live up to external expectations, you will grow wonderfully. Your goals and how you spend your time to achieve those goals should come from knowing what you want for yourself.
Your goal is to become the best version of yourself in every area of your life. It’s about embracing who you are and what tickles you. Creating success means that you become the strongest and most authentic version of yourself.
2. Start each day with activities.
The first thing you think of when you wake up is not unusual for other people’s priorities and the joys of life. Instead of thinking about how you want to spend the first part of your day, be prepared to take care of all the things you think are important. The path to doubling your revenue begins with prioritizing the things you need to do to get there.
Instead of spending your day working on the tasks of others, you should spend your day working on the tasks that help you grow your life and business. By starting your day focused on activities you can accomplish more and increase your revenue.
Starting each day with you is a form of self-love and self-care. That way you make sure yours is the first priority and your needs are taken care of before you even think about the outside world. Give yourself permission to behave better. As you take better care of yourself, it will result in growth and independence in other areas of your life.

3. Take everything you do in your business seriously.
Gary Vaynerchuk said, “Zero is greater than.” When you’re starting out there is a temptation to focus only on the numbers. When those numbers are low, it turns into negative self-limiting beliefs. This then leads to a situation where the business leader does not take things seriously.
The way to a life of greater revenue and independence is when you take everything you do seriously from day one – no matter who’s watching. You create content as if there are a million people reading it, you appear powerful, even if it looks like no one is watching, and you give your best in everything you do.
Taking everything seriously makes your best work out to the world, and when more eyeballs see it, they tell others – you grow. Be your biggest cheerleader and shine even when no one is watching. Take everything you do seriously, and it will pay dividends later.
No one is stopping you from living an unlimited free life in which you experience growth and true happiness. You can double your revenue and have financial freedom to help you enjoy all the benefits of life. It starts in your mind.
These growth mindset adjustments help you prioritize yourself and practice healthy mental health habits. A strong mindset will be the fuel that enables you to grow for years to come.
